    Yeah, I see what you mean. But Iunno, maybe they could improve it, and make the feel of the game smoother? Whoever would take it over anyways.

    I dont really care, I'll take whatever they give us. We could be pleasantly surprised. I remember when I first heard of Skate coming out, I thought it would be just a fun back up to the THPS games, like a Grind Session or something, and look at what we ended up with...

    everyone says rockstar, but Im not too stoked on that idea...... (i know thrasher was aight but, I just dont trust them)

    who ever made that ESPN skating game I would say, besides skate series that game was By Far my fav to play (so realistic compared to thps or any other game thats not ea skate)

    Rockstar makes amazing games and they would do a good job but they dont really make sports games.

    I'd rather it not be THQ cause they are just an EA clone.

    2k is pretty good tho. they make a lot of sports games.
    I watched ur shit, so watch my shit.

    I agree with pawn. Anything they give me, I'll play. And if rockstar did do it, I'd imagine it'd be pretty.. weird at first. Like with the camera angles and stuff.

    I think everyone says Rockstar because of the cities, mainly GTA. Couldn't see them being involved in a Skate game though.

    I remember a looooooong time ago someone said something about the flick it system being copyrighted to EA. I'd say that was bullshit but what do I know.

    I wouldn't mind who brought out a new Skate game. As long as it involves the flick it system and the animations and city have that OG feel. And if EA come back in a year or 2 with Skate 4 in mind, they need to take 2 steps backwards, and look at what made OG so popular and still so highly rated within the community. They could just re release OG with tweaks (walking, adv free cam etc.) and I'd be happy.

    But knowing EA, they'd probably find a way to fuck that up...

    Idc who would as long as we get the game I'd be happy.

    I would want the Flick It system kept though, an open world city like San Van, Day/Night Cycle, More customizable clothes and shoes and some new tricks. I have said we could all make it, but that maybe hard.

    I don't think we have to worry about infinity ward getting hold of a sports game. And @ Stokenstein I'd rather Rockstar just dedicate a whole game to it, then just a minigame. If it was a mini-game, they probably wouldn't focus on it much, and GTA never has had a replay feature, so unless they added that into the mini-game, or just the game in general, I don't think as many people would go for it.

    I believe the NAME "flickit" FOR the system was copyrighted. Otherwise Stoked would've been sued for sure.

    I was joking about Infinity Ward. It was a reference to how ruined the memory of COD4 with that abortion of a game called MW2.

    That is 100% inaccurate, seeing as how GTA IV for PC has a replay feature.

    I'm in the "if it's another Skate-type game, I'll play it" boat.

    Though personally, in my gaming life, I think Rockstar has put out the most consistant work I can think of. Even LA Noire which wasn't great was still a solid game. Thrasher SAD was my go to skating fix right up until OG came out. Honestly, though, if they can get a group of dedicated skaters to build the game like the Skate series, I think any company would make a good title.

    I'd just like to see SSX blow up so EA renews their interest in Skate and gets the band back together. Cuz for life.

    It was pretty decent, almost just like skate,
    you set markers, had free cam, could make them blend together for motion. (wasn't really smooth, but wasn't a big deal in my opinion)
    You could slowmo parts, basically ramp, and add filters.
    It's a lot faster at uploading then skate though, even hd.

    Agreed. The name could be Carve, with skate parks, street and some slalom longboard racing.... just a thought

    Rockstar can suck flaccid donkey cock.
    They shelved Thrasher after it got beat out by THPS.
    Thrasher came out a month before THPS with zero advertising.
    THPS came out with a well-known face for the game and mega advertising.
    Rockstar is the ones who screwed the pooch on it and tried to blame the shortcomings on Z-Axis Ltd.
    So, they sat on the Thrasher license and put all their money into GTA.

    Right now I'm banking on THPS stealing the Skate template for next years release.

    If I could pick a dev team it would be THQ Digital Phoenix (Formerly Rainbow Studios) which is the team that did Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2.
    They are the main team I think would put in the effort for a sport we all love.
    Beenox (Activision team in Quebec who did Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions) would be another great dev team.
    They are a great bunch of guys and very talented. Did some raiding with them in WoW as they are all geeks for it as well.
